Blue, grey and white striped marmoleum project

Blue, grey and white striped linoleum project

This project has taken us a week and a half to complete but the planning process has been over a year. It has been a fantastic project for probably the nicest clients we have ever worked with and so it’s been a real pleasure to see their design realized. And the really great thing is that it is exactly how they planned it and looks exactly like they wanted.

We kept popping back and forth throughout the year to see how the build was progressing. it was important to understand where the doors were going for the rails and the levels.

And eventually when the final design was settled on it was time to start work. The sub-floor was key. A mixture of ply boards and latex self levelling screeds, we took almost a week to get this completely flat and stable. Then the ping lines were drawn out to where the lino was to be fitted and finally the tricky cuts for the vinyl, all of which had to be very, very accurate to achieve the desired effect. Here is  how we did it!
